Manchester United are set to undergo a major transformation in the summer.
The Red Devils decided to sack Jose Mourinho after the club endured their worst start to a Premier League season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer picked the reigns at Old Trafford, but it was confirmed that a permanent appointment would be made at the end of this campaign.
Reports have suggested that Zinedine Zidane is in the running for the job. Ed Woodward is impressed with his work at Real Madrid, who he led to three consecutive Champions League triumphs.
Amid these rumours, the former French midfielder was pictured with Mikael Silvestre as they were spending their vacations in Dubai.
Silvestre is a 4-time Premier League winner with Manchester United, and also serves as an ambassador for the club. In the Instagram post, he questioned whether Zidane should have been awarded the best manager this year.
The duo played together for France in the 2004 European Championship as well as the 2006 World Cup finals, which turned out to be Zidane’s last professional game.
Many wonder if they had a conversation about Manchester United, with Silvestre making an attempt to recruit him for the manager role.
Bookmakers suggest that Mauricio Pochettino is likely to land the job at Old Trafford in the summer, but the Argentine is closely followed by Zinedine Zidane.
Tottenham’s Daniel Levy won’t allow his gaffer to leave easily, and is set to ask for a hefty compensation if and when Ed Woodward decides to begins talks.
